From FAPESP, July 24, 2019: Três das principais conquistas científicas nos últimos anos – a detecção do bóson de Higgs, em 2012, e das ondas gravitacionais, em 2015, e a obtenção da primeira imagem de um buraco negro, em 2019 – têm algo em comum: são grandes projetos colaborativos, com a participação de pesquisadores de diversos países, incluindo o Brasil.
From Space.com, July 19, 2019: Fermilab scientist Dan Hooper is quoted in this explainer on dark matter.
From the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, July 9, 2019: The international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, hosted by Fermilab, will start running in 2026, studying an intense beam of neutrinos that starts at Fermilab and that will be measured in underground caverns in Lead, South Dakota. Fermilab scientists Deborah Harris and Sam Zeller talk about the mysteries of neutrinos and how DUNE will address them in this in depth article.
From Medium, July 19, 2019: Hunting for dark matter, neutrinos, and other elusive signals isn’t just a satisfying endeavor, it’s a way of life for ProtoDUNE scientist Laura Manenti.
From Kelo, July 19, 2019: Fermilab’s Patrick Weber and others talk about the international, Fermilab-hosted Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment and its Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility in this 8-minute video. Sanford Underground Research Facility is home to the DUNE far detector, and the world-leading research taking place at there is giving scientists from a variety of disciplines a wealth of information about the universe, the geology of the region and life underground.
From Kelo, July 10, 2019: Fermilab’s Bonnie Fleming talks about neutrinos, the international, Fermilab-hosted DUNE and and LBNF in this 9-minute video on the research taking place one mile underground in Lead, South Dakota, at the Sanford Underground Research Facility.
From Duke Today, July 17, 2019: Teams behind the 1995 discovery are recognized for first observations of tiny but hefty particle at the heart of matter.
From CNN, July 16, 2019: On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln talks about the past, present and future of spaceflight. There is no denying the allure of manned space travel. It tugs at our imagination. Ironically, we must both temper our imagination and dream even bigger.
From Physics World, June 12, 2019: Physics World posts a video recorded inside the ProtoDUNE neutrino detector by the particle physicist and vocalist Anastasia Basharina-Freshville, who sing-explains why the noble gas is used to detect the elusive particles.
From Rapid City Journal, July 12, 2019: Fermilab Director Nigel Lockyer was the guest for a free public speaker series held one day prior to Neutrino Day, a full day of neutrino-themed public activities in Lead. Lockyer spoke about is known as the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), housed in the Long Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF), which will have its South Dakota component at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in the former Homestake mine. It’s a billion-dollar international collaboration, and it’s described as the largest particle physics project ever built in the United States.
